Has not been shown yet
It has not been revealed yet but the name has been shown to be called Tenrai Hakurei.
Byakko has only used this form once, during a demo with Seireitou. His upper body takes the form of white and gold dragon scales. He also grows 2 white wings and a dragon tail with different color jewels on it, very similar to the spirit's body.
When Hakurei is drenched with his spiritual energy it is able to create limitless amounts of light. When Hakurei shines it melds with all other light. When he releases it he can use that light to take control of shadows and attack his opponent with them. Hakurei's ability also allows it to manipulate light for other various effects.
- Rainbow Refraction: This is Hakurei's main attack. It charges up as a rainbow-colored disk-shaped energy. It is then released as a huge energy blast of rainbow energy that has enough power to completly overcome the full power of Seireitou's KatonGetsuga.
- Invisibility: Ability to make Byakko invisible to the naked eye, by surrounding him with light.
- Blinding Light: Ability to create a large area of bright around opponents disrupting their visual perceptions, causing confusion and decreasing their chance to fight back against attack
- Illusions: Ability to use light to alter another's perceptions, allowing him to make his opponent see what he wants him to see.
- Blade of Light: Dissolves his actual blade and replaces it with a blade made of pure light. If the blade is broken it can completely covers it to allow the battle to continue.
- Saigyoku Nijigasumi (彩玉虹霞, Swallowing Orb of Rainbow Mist): Causes a multitude of twinkling lights to appear which then form together around an opponent creating a huge sphere which engulfs everything within a significant radius. Anyone within that radius will potentially get caught in it. Immediately following that the sphere the collapses in on itself using the compressed light to crush everything within it.
The spirit is a dragon that is gold and white with different color jewels named Niji. It has also been named by opponents as the Rainbow Dragon. Byakko has the power to manifest the dragon to be used in battle. However, its true form has shown as a white dragon with blueish colors in certain areas, it is unknown why the true form of Niji is never used in the Hakurei's Release States.
Hakurei is an unusual Zanpaktou, having a spirit with three different forms.
Not much is known about this form, except that it seems to grant the power of light and dark chakra manipulation.
This form of Niji is normally used by Byakko as Hakurei's default spirit. It grants him the power of Rainbow Refraction.
